And these are not the things of which greatness, or sanity or happiness are made."A primary trap is to succumb to invitations to hate."Never use what is done to one as a basis for hatred. Never desire revenge."It requires real strength to love man*. And to love him despite all invitations to do otherwise, all provocations and all reasons why one should not."Happiness and strength endure only in the absence of hate. To hate alone is the road to disaster. To love is the road to strength. To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe." -- L. Ron Hubbard (*Man: mankind; the human race.)Love, of course, does not need to be physical. You don't need to hug your boss or employee and say, "I love you Bob!" You simply like everyone as much as possible.Examples1. You are driving down the road enjoying some music and some idiot cuts in front of you making you slam on the brakes to avoid a collision. You send him a mental curse and hope he has a rotten life. This doesn't make you feel any better. In fact, you feel irritated and start driving recklessly yourself.You decide to be great. You try to love the person, but the best you can do is find a little understanding. You think, "He must be late for work" and decide to wish him well. Within seconds, you feel better and forget about it. You go back to enjoying your music.2. Two years ago, you and friend Jim bought a delivery van together. He used it during the day to make deliveries from his flower shop and you used it at night to deliver newspapers to your delivery people.One night, your delivery man calls and says, "The van's not at Jim's where I normally pick it up."You called Jim who said, "Oh, I sort of rented it to this guy." You said, "We need it to get the papers onto the streets."He said, "Well, actually I sold it because I had to pay off some bills. I'll pay you back, I promise!"You can't believe he did this to you. You yell at him and vow to never speak to him again. You jump in your car and spend all night moving newspapers.Every time you think about Jim and the van, you get upset. Even two years later, you feel the hatred every time you see your new van. It makes you unpleasant to be around. You plot revenge in several ways. You'll spray paint his store windows. You'll ruin his credit. You'll spread rumors about him.But after two years, you decide to be great about it. You call Jim. He apologizes again and you say, "Don't worry about it. I'm sorry too. Do you want to go fishing this weekend?"You feel better than you've felt in two years. Your employees like being around you again.3. Before you meet the new president of your business support group you dislike her. You've been hearing rumors and bad opinions about her all week. For example, you heard she doesn't like real estate agents and you're a real estate agent.During the group's social hour, you see the new president walking toward you. She doesn't smile when she looks at you. You feel snubbed. You decide to snub her back and you turn around and ignore her. Your feel your face turning red with anger. You start to plan how you can ruin her.But then you decide to be great. You ignore all the rumors and decide to love the new president.You get introduced and give your best smile. "Congratulations! I hope you enjoy your new position here!" You instantly treat her like a close friend.The new president is relieved to have a supporter. She confides in you. "I'm so nervous about this! I sure want to help the members of this group." You become good friends. You find out she manages five large apartment complexes.She sends you so many people who want to buy condominiums and houses that your sales double that year.4. You overhear one of your employees scream on the telephone, "Well, if you don't like my attitude, you can take your business elsewhere!" She slams down the telephone and then sees you standing there. You feel a little hatred as it appears she's turning away customers.Many bosses would say, "You treat a customer like that again and you're fired!"But you want to be a great boss and continue to love your staff even when you have reasons not to. You say, "What happened here?""This jerk asked me if I was new or just stupid.""So you yelled at him and told him we didn't want his business?""Right.""Well if we don't sell to jerks, we won't make any money and will have to lay off some staff. You need to deal with jerks if you want to succeed on this job. Can you do it?""Yea, I suppose. I'll bite my tongue and be polite no matter what they say from now on.""Do you need help learning how to do that?""No, I'll be fine. Thanks."Being great leads to a sane, cheerful, profitable operation.
